Desktop Windows Management

I have a Windows 7 Home Premium Laptop that is experiencing the DMW.exe error message. I click okay and the message still appears. Basically I have disabled the service and the message still comes up. I have tried to upgrade the display drivers and they are current and up to date.....Here is the report from MSoft:

Short of reinstalling is there anything I can do to fix this...? I have also tried to disable Aero by giving her a Basic theme.


Hi There,

Have you tried updateing your graphics driver?

Umm yeah. Tried that and I get a message that it's the latest driver. I used system restore and it seems to be fine.
